Shares and Other Securities in the Conflict of Laws
Oxford University Press, 2003 - 358 pages
This book examines the problems of choice of law where transactions cross borders and involve shares or other securities of different nationalities. It considers dealings in securities under the traditional direct holding system and under the modern system of holding through intermediaries. Various theories and legislative reforms have been suggested in an attempt to resolve these two methods, and the book examines the extent to which they provide a viable solution.
